Fletcher Allen, a Vermont university hospital and medical center, serves all of
Vermont and the northern New York region. Located in Burlington, Fletcher Allen is a regional, academic healthcare center and teaching hospital in alliance with the University of Vermont.
University of Vermont Dental Residency
The University of Vermont dental residency program is one year, and it is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation as part of the American Dental Association. Our affiliation with the University of Vermont College of Medicine provides the vital academic grounding for educating our residents, while the sponsorship of Fletcher Allen Health Care (formerly the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont) affords both institutional context and a modern workplace.
Dental Residency Rotations
Our residents perform comprehensive dental care in several locations using the latest dental materials and techniques -- beginning with a five-month rotation through The Dental Center. UVM dental residents will then rotate to the Medical Center Campus at Fletcher Allen for three months, continuing with a three- month rural rotation through a health center in Plainfield, Vermont, a two-week rotation with the Anesthesia Department, and a two-week rotation with the Emergency Department.
Through this exposure, dental residents have exposure to complex oral surgery cases performed in the operating room and taking emergency call allows dental residents to become proficient in treating any dental emergency.
The training dental residents receive from The University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen allows them to leave her with the education and experience to treat their dental patients in private practice or to excel in a specialty training program.
